Columbus Short was just given permission by a Los Angeles judge to go back home … Unfortunately, for only two hours.
According to TMZ, Short faced a judge on Wednesday morning to get permission to move into his home that he was recently kicked out of after a pulling a knife on his wife.
The judge granted the request and ordered the Scandal star to enter the premisses on Monday afternoon with his lawyer present, but Short is only allowed two hours inside the home to simply pick up his belongings. Then, he has to bounce.
Short’s wife of nine years, Tanee Short, filed a restraining order against the star earlier this month after the alleged domestic dispute at their Chatsworth home. According to an affidavit filed by Tanee, the actor threatened to hit her with a wine bottle after he “dumped the wine on me.”
The documents state that he then “grabbed a knife from the kitchen” and “pinned me on the couch and began to choke me. He placed the knife close to my neck and threatened to kill me and then kill himself.”
The troubled 31-year-old allegedly wanted to “play a game he called ‘Truth or Truth'” in which he would list “names of people we know and accused me of having an affair.”
The actor’s wife also filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. She is fighting for custody of their 2-year-old daughter.
